Former Korean congresswoman Kyung Won Na spoke at GWSB last month about her experience as chairwoman of the recent 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in South Korea – the most successful winter games in Special Olympics’ history. Na also discussed her experience in her country’s congress, and the national impact of the recent Special Olympics, which served as a test case for South Korea’s hosting of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.
Na, who has a doctorate in international law, was a member of the 17th and 18th National Assembly of Joong-gu in Seoul. Prior to her election, she was national spokesperson for the ruling National Party. Na is a member of Special Olympics International’s board of directors and a co-representative of Korea Parents Association for the Disabled.
